Jesus was an immigrant
Escaping execution by an authoritarian regime, at the age of 2 Jesus fled with Joseph and Mary as refugees to Egypt. Constantly on the move as an adult, Jesus was the ultimate sojourner. Because he was the only citizen of heaven to live on earth, nobody fully understood him. He knew what it felt like to be an outsider.
Jesus understands you
Today’s second-generation immigrant youth are caught between the cultural expectations of their parents and the American society in which they grew up.

And it helps them cultivate stronger relationships with their families and American friends.
